I just wanted to say thank you- to you and the staff at the centre who made our excursion such a great experience.
The students were engaged and entertained the whole time, we all had a great day. It was so well organised, we will be back!

Thanks again

Yesterday we attended your centre with our Year Five students and I would like to say a huge thank you for a fabulous excursion. The students absolutely loved the day and learnt a lot, as did the teachers!

Neil was the teacher with our group for the majority of the day and he was fantastic! He made the day really exciting for the kids and was very engaging and enthusiastic.

I came back to school and have shared with the other grade supervisors what a great day and we had and encouraged them to look at excursions to Penrith Lakes for their grades as well.

A huge thank you on behalf of Rooty Hill Public School!

Hi Neil,

Thank you so much for your ongoing support for our excursion – and over the years! I think Mr Clever should be in the running for a Knighthood by now, due to years of service. Sir Clever of Penrith has a special ring to it! I think the Government got rid of it (again), so perhaps an Order of Australia could be on the cards!

Many thanks for your assistance Neil. It’s always great to work with you.

Dear Laura, Neil and Amie,

Thank you so much for the wonderful excursion that we were able to participate in today.
The students were engaged and upon talking to them back at school after the excursion, the overwhelming majority felt that the excursion was worthwhile and that they had all learnt something new from the day’s activities.
The fieldwork activities were straightforward and students were able to achieve results that allowed them to think about the issues that they are covering in class.
Congratulations on a great excursion.
